Spanning-tree VLAN question

I currently have an etherchannel configured. I have one of the interfaces that traffic is gettign sent through, but the other is showing in a independent/suspended state and will not join the bundle.

When I issue a sh spanning-tree vlan 5 on the switch I get the output below.

Interface Gi1/0/24 belongs in port-channel10, why would it be showing the individual interface in this location. How do I remove it?

InfamusCommented:
what is the port channel number that is in question?

Can you post sh etherchannel summary and sh run int gi1/0/24?

harbor235Commented:
All it is saying is that vlan 5 is defined on the port channel and on port Gi1/0/24. You must have port Gi1/0/24  set as an access port with vlan 5 assigned. That is not a problem unless you want port Gi1/0/24  in another vlan?

I assume the port channel uses vlan 5 as well?, the port channel is either trunking several vlans or is not a trunk port and  vlan 5 is defined on the port members of the port channel?

Can you post sh run int Gi1/0/24 and show run int Po10?

Infamus,

Here is the line from the sh ether summary.

 Po10(SU)        LACP      Gi1/0/23(P) Gi1/0/24(I)

The (I) means it is in stand-alone. this is the interface that will not bundle into the port-channel.

Post the other member interface config also. Make sure the configuration on the Port channel and member interfaces match EXACTLY. except for the channel-group command.

SouljaCommented:
Also, what is the configuration of the port connecting to Gi1/0/24, that is pretty important too. Post the config of that interface also.

harbor235Commented:
What kind of device is this? So not sure I understand the problem? There is another port that is defined as a Po10 member but is not joining the bundle?  Post the following output from the command

show etherchannel 10 detail

I would verify the other side, specifically verify the other end that connects to GigabitEthernet1/0/24 and compare that agains the other side that connects to GigabitEthernet1/0/23.

harbor235Commented:
Whatever connects to GigabitEthernet1/0/23 is having a problem, it may be that it is configured differently than the other side that is working.

I bet the port on the other end that connects to GigabitEthernet1/0/23 is not in an etherchannel group like the other end that connects to GigabitEthernet1/0/24.

InfamusCommented:
It's Gi1/0/24 which is having an issue.

Yes, please check the other end's config.

YeloballAuthor Commented:
The other end is connecting to A HP backup node. That NIC configuration is pretty straight forward, select High Availability (bonded) and be no your way.

YeloballAuthor Commented:
That node does support 802.3AD which is what the high availability is.

harbor235Commented:
Aah yes, got the interface numbers crossed so:

I bet the port on the other end that connects to GigabitEthernet1/0/24 is not in an etherchannel group like the other end that connects to GigabitEthernet1/0/23.

I also notice your Gi24 interface and gi23 interface configs don't match. The 23 match the port channnel but 24 doesn't compleltly.

InfamusCommented:
High availability?  So it is active/passive mode?

What would be ideal. Should I add switchport access vlan5 to gi1/0/24 or remove that from port-channel config and gi1/0/23?

YeloballAuthor Commented:
Infamus, that is correct.

harbor235Commented:
Are you saying that the other end of the channel is not going to the same device? Are you trying to do VPC from a Cisco Box to an HP box?

Please describe your setup in detail, nodes involved, vendors, etc ......

I would remove the command as it is not needed.

Found that one of the bonded interfaces on the NIC was malfunctioning. Had to replace the NIC to resolve the issue.
